Kate Hudson recently opened up about her estranged father and her relationship with her siblings. During this week’s episode of Sunday Today with Willie Geist, the actress who recently shared that she would like to reconnect with her estranged father Bill Hudson’s children as she explained why she decided to share that part of her life publicly.
“I think that estrangement is unfortunately quite common. I think it’s important for people to talk about that,” Hudson, 41, explained.
“Sometimes we need a little bit of talk and humour to move us into places where we can heal some of the wounds,” the mother of three added.
In a January episode of her Sibling Revelry podcast with brother Oliver Hudson, Kate shared that she had been thinking about their other siblings as well as their estranged father, who was married to her mum Goldie Hawn from 1976 to 1982.
“You know what I’ve been thinking about lately? Dad. I’ve been thinking about our sisters that we don’t spend any time with and our brothers. We’ve got four siblings we don’t spend any time with.” she said.
“We’ve been talking so much about sibling relationships and distraught relationships or good relations and we’re sitting here like we have the best family, we’re so great and yet we don’t ever acknowledge the fact that we have four other siblings,” she continued.
Following his divorce from Hawn, the actor went on to have two children daughter Emily and son Zachary with then-wife, Cindy Williams. In 2006, Bill also welcomed daughter Lalania.
Although Hudson has not always spoken publicly about her family estrangement, she clarified during her Sunday Today interview that it’s weighed on her for a long time.

“It’s a 41-year-old issue,” she told Geist, pointing out that while she has a “great family,” which includes her mother’s longtime love Kurt Russell. However not having a relationship with her dad has had a lasting impact on her.
“I have a great family, I have a beautiful mother, I have a stepfather who stepped in and played a huge, huge part in sharing what it is to have a dependable father figure in our life, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that we didn’t know our dad. People sometimes need to hear that they’re not alone in that,” she said
Hudson previously addressed her relationship with her biological father in 2016, saying she forgave him for abandoning her as a child.
“I really do recognize whatever those issues are, it’s just something that he has to live with, and that must be painful for him. So I forgive him,” she said during an interview on The Howard Stern Show.
